No matter where you go or where you stay in Corfu, Logas is one of the beaches you must visit. Located on the northwest corner of the island (36 km from the capital), past the beautiful village of Peroulades, it has one of the most beautiful views you will admire during your holiday and you can't miss it.
Before going to Logas beach
Follow the locals' advice as I did the first time I came here. Before going to Logas Beach you must check the weather forecast, as this small spot lays on an area facing the North and is sometimes affected by the northern winds. Most hotels in Corfu display the weekly weather forecast on their reception board with the temperatures, humidity and wind's direction and speed (Beaufort scale) prediction. In case this number's high (north wind and more than 4Bf), the beach could just disappear under the waves.
This is what makes it magical.
How to get to Logas Beach
Drive Northwest until Peroulades. Past the village, you will find a big open area with parking and a restaurant-cafe on its right hand. Just between the building and the parking, you will see a small ramp that turns into concrete stairs after a while. All you have to do is walk down and choose your spot on the seaside, covered with thin golden sand.
This beach is nestled underneath huge vertical cliffs with vegetation on the top and faces the Ionian Sea, while the Diapontias can be seen from a distance: Othoni, Mathraki and Erikousa are three small islands and the most northwestern lands of Greece and if you have enough time a visit to one of them is worth it.
If you have enough time during your stay in Corfu, it will be worth it visiting at least one of them. Vive Corfu can help you organize your excursion there.
What can you do in Logas Beach, apart from relaxing? Mud bathing!
On one side of the beach, you will find some sunbeds and umbrellas for rent, but if you take a short walk you will reach a quieter area. Here, many of us love taking a mud bath mixing, as usual, some of the clay stones with seawater and spreading it as a beauty cream all over your skin and hair. This is not the only place in Corfu where you can do it, but one of the best ones!
